I’ve had this song on repeat for the past week. It’s not like I hadn’t heard it a million times already, but for some reason, this week it was fresh. It’s like something happened in me and I was hearing it with new ears.
I’ve never considered myself not to be brave, and by the worlds standards, I think that I’m probably very brave. I graduated college with a 10 hour a week job and starting a new business. The last day of work at DBU, I got a phone call asking to interview at Pantego Bible Church because they had an opening for an Events Assistant. I was floored because up until that moment, I had no idea how I was going to pay rent at my new apartment.
I went in for an interview and was asked to come back for a second one. I met with the Events Director and was already ready to start! Later in the interview I was asked to consider a different position within the church as the Administrative Assistant to Worship & Media. I honestly didn’t know what to say…Events was my thing. I wanted to do them all the time, but most people don’t know that I actually went to school for Music Business. So, there was still a small part of me that was passionate about leading others in worship. I accepted the position in the Worship Department and have never looked back.
These past two years I have grown tremendously as an artist and in knowledge of media and production. I have learned things that I would have never dreamed & a lot of it plays a huge role in where Borrowed & Blue has landed. Over the past two years I have also watched a huge dream – with small expectations- bloom. Bloom into a business that is built on relationships and showing brides, grooms and their families Christ love on one of the most important days of their lives.
The one thing that is consistent in all of this is that every time God provided, I felt a tug that lead me to seeing the amazing things He can do. I am so happy and eager to say that I am feeling that tug again. It started a few months ago when I felt a need for a Home Group at Pantego that catered to my life stage. I wanted a place that people who had graduated college, were married or single and had not yet had kids, would feel plugged in. So, I acted and this morning I met 22 people that feel the same way.
There is no better feeling than when you know that you are following Christ. I am so eager to get to know each and every person and just do life together. I think it is so important to surround yourself with people that can encourage and cover you with love.
All of that to say, that being brave doesn’t mean you have to start your own business or uproot your life and move to a different state. It means whatever you feel the Lord is calling you to.
“You make me brave.”
